This is probably a stupid question but people say bread is really heavy and makes you put on weight, is this true?
lol not a stupid question at all! There are definitely mixed messages going around about bread and the media is mostly to blame.
Basically, bread is like any other starch: It’s full of carbs which causes insulin release which causes fat storage. It’s not just specific to bread. Some athletes eat rice to lose weight because it has the same effect. White bread is particularly dangerous compared to whole grain because it has low levels of fiber and sometimes added sugars.
Basically, you just have to watch how much bread you’re eating and what types. :)
